The women's soccer team allowed its first goals of the season last week and dropped their first contest of the 2011 campaign, 2-1, despite Sarah Lang continuing to score goals for The Pride. Greensboro looks to get back to its winning ways this coming week with a road match Wednesday and two at Pride Field this weekend. This week also marks the end of the non-conference season for The Pride, who hope to gain some momentum before kicking off against Peace on September 24th.
September 14th at Guilford College (7:00 p.m.)-The Pride's cross-town rivals opened the season slowly, losing two of its first three games, but have bounced back and won three in a row by a combined score of 12-1. Sophomore midfielder Sarah Levitt is leading the Quakers this season with 12 points on five goals and two assists. Freshman forward Hannah Schiltz tallies second on the team with four goals this season and another freshman, forward Sarah Lewis, leads the team with three assists.
In last year's match-up between the two teams, Greensboro narrowly came out on top 1-0. The Pride's sophomore forward Sarah Lang, who leads the team with six goals this season, scored the game winner for The Pride. The Quakers outshot Greensboro 11-6 in last year's game, with an 8-2 advantage on target, but The Pride took advantage of their limited opportunities.
September 17th vs. Marymount (1:00 p.m.)-After opening the season with two wins, the Saints have dropped two consecutive contests to move to 2-2 for the season. Junior midfielder Stephanie Flood leads Marymount this season with two goals while junior forward Katie Hamelin and sophomore forward Shannon Bisselink each have four points as well (one goal, two assists). Hamelin finished second for the Saints in goals scored last year with seven and Bisselink led the team in assists, tallying six on the season. Marymount is anchored in goal by freshman Victoria Wyand who has 18 saves this year while allowing six goals.
In last year's match-up, The Pride came out on top in dominate fashion, winning 6-2. Greensboro scored three goals in the first 15 minutes of the match-up and led 4-1 at half-time to win comfortably over the Saints. Sarah Lang led the way for The Pride, scoring a hat trick, while junior midfielder Meredith Kelly added two more. The sixth goal was counted as an own goal for Marymount. Senior Beth Ward aided the effort with two assists on the game and junior forward Hannah Coats tallied one as well.
September 18th vs. Washington and Lee (4:00 p.m.)-The Generals cruised to two victories to start the season, but were defeated by Shenandoah 1-0 in their last game. Senior goalkeeper Emily Leary has allowed only one goal this season and recorded seven saves. Leary anchored Washington and Lee's defense last year as well, allowing only 12 goals in 17 games and recording a save percentage of .801. Offensively, the Generals are led by freshman defender Katherine Rush with four goals and an assist for nine points and senior midfielder Allie Espina with three goals and an assist for seven points.
The Pride won last year's match-up with the Generals by a score of 2-0. Meredith Kelly and sophomore midfielder Mary Randolph both scored unassisted goals for Greensboro. Washington and Lee dominated the stat sheet, outshooting The Pride 16-4 and earning seven corner kicks to just one for Greensboro. The Pride's defense held strong, however, and took advantage of their limited opportunities to record the win.
